Avedzi expresses worry about delays of public institutions


Mr James Klutse Avedzi, Chairman, Public Accounts Committee
(PAC) of Parliament has expressed worry about how public institutions delay in responding to
requests made by other institutions to help them do their work.
Mr Avedzi, who is also the Deputy Minority Leader, has therefore urged institutions to ensure
that they worked by the Public Procurement Laws and the Financial Management Acts to avoid
violating the laws that could result in sanctions.
Mr Avedzi said this at the ongoing PAC’s sitting in Tamale to consider the 2019 Auditor
General’s Report on Pre-Universities in the Northern, Northeast, Upper East, Upper West and
the Savana Regions.
The six-day sitting would consider infractions cited by the Auditor General in its 2019 Reports.
The 2019 report cited eight Pre-Universities and two Polytechnics for irregularities related to
outstanding loans, and staff debtors, cash irregularities misapplication of funds, non-retirement
of imprest, unapproved expenditures, and non-payment of internally generated funds into the
Consolidated Fund and payroll irregularities, among others.
Institutions that had so far appeared before the Committee included the Tamale Technical
University in the Northern Region, Bolgatanga Polytechnic in the Upper East and Wa
Polytechnic in the Upper West
The PAC would also interrogate the Report of the Auditor General on the Management and
Utilisation of District Assemblies’ Common Fund and Other Statutory Funds For the year
